Bombshell's Ms. June's Challenge -- I See Clearly Now!

Sharon Rogers, who is Bombshell's Ms. June, i.e. the Guest Designer for June, has issued a challenge named "I Can See Clearly Now!". The challenge is to use vellum or acetate to create a card or project using Bombshell's stamps!

Here's mine! Sorry about the shadows. It's difficult to photograph a clear card, even on a sunny day!

Here's the inside!

I stamped the anchor from the Ahoy Sailor set onto creme Neenah cardstock and colored it with Copic markers, then coated the anchor with Clear Gelly Glaze pen to add some dimension and shine. 

The piece was die cut using a Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 28 die, where it stayed while Old Paper Distress ink was sponged over it. I removed the stamped sponged piece from the die and set it aside while I created the rest of the card.

A piece of acetate cardstock was scored to form a card. That was harder than I thought it would be. Go know. I die cut two pieces of patterned paper from Teresa Collins World Traveler 6x6 pad using Nestabilities Labels  22, edged them with Black Soot Distress ink, then adhered them  so they'd match up on opposite sides of the card front. Two more pieces from the same pad were die cut using Nestabilities Labels 3, sponged with Black Soot Distress ink, and adhered them in position on opposite sides of the back of the card, so that they would appear as a border to the front piece. Clear as mud? I thought so. 

Boss Kut corner dies were used to cut the same patterned paper and adhered to the corners on both sides of the front of the card. I added Ideology Film Strip ribbon using the Tiny Attacher, then added 7 Gypsies rub-on stars to the film frames.
